They both are, with no difference in meaning. I would go with "cakes" just because it sounds better with the two plurals.

Thank you very much for both the answers and especially for a beautifully illustrated cake picture answer. I agree the all-plural 'cakes and cookies' option sounds better.

Truly lifelike paintings of some delicious looking cakes, pastries, pies and ice cream! The distinguished artist may have got these made and displayed them under bright lights, which he then faithfully painted in pastels. He might also have painted this from mental pictures which then becomes unimaginable to think. I am no connoisseur of art, but I do have a sweet tooth. Therefore, I can tell you I get a craving for pies and pastries after seeing these elegant paintings! Thanks for introducing to us the works of Wayne Thiebaud.
